Foie Gras Tomato Kimchi: Baguette, shaved foie, pear, spicy - 2+

J's comment > I'm a huge fan of foie gras so this was a no brainer; very creamy foie that just melted onto the baguette that was warm, soft yet crispy; would have been better w just a tad more foie; tomato kimchi was on the sweet side, not too spicy, loved the pear component

Kalbee Osso Buco: Melting tender beef short rib, chili soy glaze - 2

J's comment > not bad; came w the rice and pickles; sauce was very good w the rice, not too spicy; the beef though, whilst tender as advertised and did indeed 'melt' off the bone, and was not dry in the least, was slightly salty - strange cause the sauce on its own wasn't salty

Korean Taco: Hand stretched tortilla, beef belly, chili sauce - 2

J's comment > tender beef; sauce slightly spicy but tasty, however, did drown out the flavor of the beef; tortilla a tad hard though, almost broke off when I folded the taco up

Extra Comment
So I was reminiscing on my NY eats in drafting the post of NYC vs YVR (yes yes it's coming!) and just couldn't get Jungsik out of my head. I was craving something (anything!) to get rid of this addiction, so I ended up @ Damso. Whilst Damso ain't no Jungsik, it wasn't a disappointment, but then again I'm easily swayed by foie...
